PONTIUS PILATE

 

Pontius Pilate was the Roman governor of Judśa. The chief priests and elders of the people took Jesus to Pilate because they didn't believe that Jesus was the King of the Jews. Pontius Pilate couldn't find that Jesus did anthing wrong, but the Jews said that if he let Jesus go, then he must not be Caesar's friend, because Caesar was the king. When Pontius Pilate heard that, he made up his mind to have Jesus whipped and then to turn Him over to the people who wanted to crucify Jesus.

As the morning dawned, the whole multitude led Jesus away and delivered Him to Pontius Pilate, (the governor). Pilate came out to those bringing Jesus and asked, What is this man accused of? They answered, if He wasnít a criminal, we wouldnít have brought Him to you. We found this fellow corrupting the nation and refusing to give tribute to Cśsar, saying that He Himself is Christ a King. Pilate said, Take Him and judge Him according to your law, but the Jewish people said, It isnít lawful for us to put any man to death. This fulfilled the words that Jesus spoke about how He would die, being lifted up on a cross because it was the Romans that crucified their "criminals" ...

Pilate went back into the judgment hall and called Jesus, saying, Are you the King of the Jews? Jesus answered him, Do you say that I am, or did others tell you that about me? Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Your own nation and the chief priests have delivered you to me: what have you done? Jesus answered, My Kingdom is not of this world: if my Kingdom were of this world, then my servants would fight, so I wouldnít be delivered to the Jews: but my Kingdom isnít from here. Pilate said to Him, Art you a king then? Jesus answered, You say that Iím a King. For this reason I was born, and for this cause I came into the world, that I should testify of the TRUTH. Every one that is of the TRUTH hears my voice. Pilate said to Him, What is truth? Jesus did not answer (probably cuz olí Pilate was not "Of the TRUTH").

And the chief priests accused Him of many things but He answered nothing and Pilate asked Him again, You have nothing to say? Look at how many things they testify against you. But, Jesus still answered nothing and Pilate marveled at this. The SILENCE of Jesus fulfills a Prophecy written in Isaiah.

Isaiah 53:7
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

After Pilate had said this, he went out again to the Jews, and said to them, I donít find Him guilty of anything. And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judśa, beginning in Galilee to here. When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether Jesus was a Galilaean. As soon as he knew that He belonged in Herod's jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem at that time. When Herod saw Jesus, he was very glad. Heíd been curious about Him for a long time because he heard many things about Him; and he hoped to see some miracle done by Him. Herod questioned Him at length; but Jesus answered him nothing (probably cuz olí Herod was not "Of the TRUTH" either).

The chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused Him. Herod and his soldiers belittled Him and ridiculed Him, and arrayed Him in a gorgeous robe, and sent Him back to Pilate. That day Pilate and Herod became friends but before that they were not so. Then Pilate called the chief priests and the rulers of the people together and said, Youíve brought this man to me as one that corrupts the people, and look, Iíve examined Him in front of you and havenít found Him guilty of any of the things you accuse Him of. I even sent you with Him to Herod and found that nothing has been done by Him thatís worthy of death. So, Iíll chastise Him and release Him. And they did ... Severely.

By custom, Pilate had to release a prisoner to the people at the feast of Passover. At that time there was a well known prisoner named Barabbas. Pilate asked, Do you want me to release Barabbas or Jesus, which is called Christ? He said this because he knew the chief priests delivered Him out of jealousy.

When Pilate sat down in the judgment seat, his wife sent a message to him saying, Donít do anything against that just man (Jesus). Iíve suffered many things today in a dream because of Him. But the chief priests and elders persuaded the people to request Barabbas be freed and to crucify Jesus. They all shouted at once, Away with this man, and release Barabbas to us! When Pilate saw that he wasnít getting anywhere with the people, but instead they were stirred, he took water and washed his hands in front of the people, saying, Iím innocent of the blood of this just man, see to it. All the people answered, His blood is on us, and on our children. (There is an old legend that suggests that Pilate is still washing his hands every day in hell, but as with Judas ... He was but a tool. It is obvious Pilate tried to spare Jesus but prophecy would prevail. Remember TRUTH ... It is for God to determine anyone's guilt or innocence.)

Now Barabbas had been thrown into prison because he was a robber and a murderer. Pilate, willing to release Jesus, spoke to the people again. He asked, What do you want me to do then, with the man whom you call the King of the Jews? They shouted, Crucify Him, crucify Him! Then he said to them the third time, Why, what evil has He done? I find no reason to put Him to death, but Pilate, willing to please the people said, Iíll chastise Him, and let Him go. And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that Jesus be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed. Pilate gave sentence that it should be as the people demanded, and he released Barabbas. Pilate took Jesus and scourged Him.

Isaiah 53:5
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

The soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on His head. They put a purple robe on Him, and a reed in His right hand (mocking that it was His sceptre) and bowed the knee mocking Him, Hail, King of the Jews! And they spit on Him and took the reed and hit Him on the head. Pilate went out again, and said to them, Behold, I bring Him out to you, so you may know that I find no fault in Him. Then Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate said to them, Behold the man! When the chief priests and officers saw Him, they shouted, Crucify Him, crucify Him! Pilate said to them, You take Him and crucify Him: I find Him innocent. The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law He ought to die because He made Himself the Son of God.

When Pilate heard that, he was the more afraid and went back into the judgment hall, and said to Jesus, Where are you from? But Jesus gave him no answer. Pilate said to Him, You wonít speak to me? Donít you know that I have the power to crucify you, and the power to release you? Jesus answered, You could have no power at all against me, unless it were given to you from above: so the person that delivered me to you has the greater sin. Again we see that our view is not that of the Lord's at times. HE alone ... Is the Judge.

From then on, Pilate sought to release Him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If you let this man go, you arenít Cśsar's friend: whoever makes himself a king speaks against Cśsar. When Pilate heard that, he brought Jesus out, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place called the Pavement. It was the preparation of the Passover. Pilate said to the Jews, Behold your King! But they all cried out, Away with Him, crucify Him! Pilate said to them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Cśsar. Then Pilate turned Jesus over to them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and took off the purple from Him, and put His own clothes on Him, and led Him out to crucify Him.
